Miami Lighthouse for the Blind and Visually Impaired recently hosted its annual Beeping Easter Egg Hunt at its Academy Playground. The event, supported by the South Florida Police Benevolent Association and Miami-Dade Police Department Bomb Squad, was attended by 45 students. Each Easter egg emitted a beeping sound to help the visually impaired students locate them, emphasizing the organization’s mission of showing that “it’s possible to see without sight.”

President and CEO Virginia Jacko highlighted the importance of inclusivity for children with vision disabilities, who are often left out of traditional activities like Easter egg hunts. The Beeping Easter Egg Hunt allowed both visually impaired students and those without vision disabilities to join in the festive tradition using their sense of hearing.

In addition to the egg hunt, students received Easter baskets and had the opportunity to interact with a police robot during the event. The South Florida Police Benevolent Association and Miami-Dade Police Department Bomb Squad sponsored and assisted with the event to ensure all the beeping eggs were functional for the students at Miami Lighthouse Academy.

The Miami Lighthouse for the Blind and Visually Impaired is dedicated to providing services and support for individuals with visual impairments. For more information about their programs and services, visit their website at miamilighthouse.org.
